    magnetic flux DOES NOT go into superconductors because of the meissner effect. so, eddy current never flows in superconductors. see this for more details

    You said eddy currents make any conductor magnetic. Not if it is strongly diamagnetic (copper is only slightly diamagnetic). Here is a video of a graphite (conductive but very strong diamagnetic) not producing the Lenz law effect because there is no magnetic induction in the first place to produce the eddy currents:

    Also you explanation about why transformers work is wrong. It is because Faraday magnetic induction law and not because eddy currents which is an effect due to Lenz-Faraday laws.

    Also superconductors do not work because eddy currents. This theory was disproved since many years now.

    If you made the foil thicker by winding a whole lot more aluminum it MIGHT have worked.. But the gap between the foil and magnet is large. :(

    Technically, I think you ALSO just discovered a POSSIBLE METHOD of Eddy Current-based Refrigeration! Since he can cause Iron cores that HEAT UP FAST from eddy currents, couldn't you ALSO use those same eddy currents to MOVE THAT SAME HEAT AWAY QUICKLY away from the same iron core or transfer excess heat to and/or from ANOTHER NEARBY core? i.e. create such a large temperature differential that refrigeration happens in a electromotive manner similar to what happens in a mechanically-based Stirling Engine? I suspect you could use Eddy Currents to create cryogenic cooling to levels in the 50 Degrees Kelvin or colder! I think it might even get cold enough to make Liquid Helium! How about exploring whether eddy current can be used in refrigeration!

      I think you can use the Magneto-Caloric Effect as outlined in the following article:
      by using eddy currents to heat up Copper, Tungsten, Silver, Gold and/or ferrous metal blocks or sticks which can oscillate localized magnetic fields and then cause adiabatic demagnetization and remagnetization which will THEN LIKELY (i'm personally not sure as I haven't tested that yet!) create Peltier-like or Thomsen Effect heat transfer which can supercool the local environment.
      Even Paramagnetic metals such as Aluminum, Magnesium, Manganese, Nickel, etc. could be used for this type of Eddy-current-based refrigeration. If someone could design-in the proper eddy-current-based heating of ALUMINUM, then REALLY CHEAP and FAST magnetic refrigeration would NOW be a possibility for home/food cooling, industrial refrigeration and micro-sized computer CPU/GPU cooling for use within desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphones which means REALLY FAST computers could be run at MUCH HIGHER clock speeds so we can have IBM-Mainframe-on-a-Chip supercomputing!
      AND if we can do magnetic refrigeration using ALUMINUM, it would NOW BE POSSIBLE to supercool plain old AIR so we could directly get Liquid Nitrogen and/or Liquid Oxygen from it so we can supercool just about ANYTHING else on a super-inexpensive basis! THAT would allow home-based medical labs-on-a-chip to be bought by ANYONE for a cheap price. You could have actual refrigerators or freezers to be EASILY built-into cars, boats and planes or into portable devices or even CLOTHING! You could ALSO cool your cases of beer and wine in less than 10 seconds!

    Dear Mehdi hi, Thanks for great and very informative videos. Mate, I need your help if it will possible please. I need you to tell me how to create a weak (safe) Electrical Current and/or, how to build a weak Electrostatic please, I give the scenario first; imagine there is a tick plastic container (around 1 or 2 gallons) with some kind of Resin and a few piece of wood, it is actually a vacuum chamber. Now, I need that weak electrical current or electrostatic in that Resin by placing the producer (device or anything) of them while the vacuum pump is taking the air out of the chamber for the period of time it is on (could be couple of hours). Just imagine painting a car by using electrostatic to have a more smooth and indelible result/paint. Will that be possible please to tell me how to do it? Cheers mate.

    I'm working on a self powered generator that will have 110 volt plug-in. No Batteries, No Gas, No Solar - Self Running Generator. I'm doing a sort of hybrid of Muller, Mendocino, & Bedini all in one unit but with a twist of me. Come join me and support us, it would mean the world. Be the first to support a free power machine that will end up in every household. Too many fakes in the world, I'm the real deal and I understand why so many have a hard time believing that free energy is possible. You can't get more out than you put in. But I'm not going to put anything in, the machine will do all of that. This unit will be a one foot square in size by two feet long. I have fully tested this and it will work as I stated. I welcome the challenge.

    Welding is just the cheapest way too connect the sheets. You are right that it is not optimal in terms of efficiancy, but most of those small motors have such little run time that efficiancy isnt the most important thing. You just want to build it as cheap as possible.

    • Karthik C
      Karthik C 19 дней назад

      Because you want a material that allows magnetic fields produced by the coils to flow through it easily. This is called permeability. Imagine not using the core at all. Hence no eddy current losses but the flux linkage from the primary coil of the transformer to the secondary would also go down since air does not allow magnetic flux as easily as iron does. Hence we use a laminated iron core that minimizes eddy current losses but allows the magnetic field to link between the coils easily. Hope this helps.
